This is a nice, simple one from April 28th 1971 - the one on "Ladies and Gentlemen". There's a chamber-music feel to the instrumental mix (listen for example to the passage about 2:30 into the song). I think Bobby's guitar really shines on this. The recording is top-notch, although if Pigpen was playing organ you can't hear it - it's just guitars and drums. My only criticism is that Jerry's vocal is unusually off-key.
